Margaret Hodge on A4e and welfare to work providers


There is "still a cloud" hanging over the firm A4e that had a government contract to help people into work, said the chair of the Commons Public Accounts Committee.

Labour MP Margaret Hodge told Carole Walker: "You don't pay a company if they have not done the work."
